Brendan Mullane inspired by Rome for Brioni SS14

By Margaux Cerruti

November 15, 2013

Brendan Mullane proposes his own reinterpretation of the Brioni‘s Italian traditions in the new spring/summer 2014 collection, his second since he joined the house in June 2012. Founded in Roma in 1945, Brioni’s goal has since been to define Italian timeless elegance, characterized by their handmade suits showcasing a high-end savoir-faire.

It was then towards Rome that Mullane turned for inspiration. Using a tile pattern originating from the 1950s as a continuum for the collection, Brioni’s Creative Director juggled with tradition and modernity. Mullane borrowed his palette from the city’s architecture and soft tones, ranging from beige to dark reds, soft lilac, pale blues, and grays, to design elegant suits as well as casual day wear. The interplay between the pure, clean-cuts in mellow colors, and a clever use of texture, layers, and materials is the highlight of the collection.

Although Mullane’s work for spring/summer 2014 is a real praise of Brioni’s traditions, the oversized bags and the use of exotic materials like crocodile give the collection a modern touch that meets the needs of the modern man.
